Goole and East Riding is set to have a loud and exciting 2017 with the introduction of a brand-new contemporary Rock Choir.
National phenomenon Rock Choir have opened four brand-new choirs in Driffield, Goole, Market Weighton and Pocklington and are inviting local people and their friends to go along for a free taster session.
Rock Choir’s uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit is a huge part of its attraction. At an individual level, it helps improve people’s self-confidence, and enables them to develop new singing skills and enjoy a dynamic new social life.
Singing together and achieving such a great sound gives members a huge sense of fulfilment. Added to this is the glamour and excitement of performing in public, which for many is a truly liberating experience.
Goole Rock Choir leader, Anna Lusty, who will be running the sessions, told Our Goole: ‘I am really excited to bring Rock Choir to Goole, especially after having being brought up in Yorkshire and seeing how much friendship and fun choirs bring to the community. Rock Choir really is for everyone-it’s the coming together of like-minded people, who may not ordinarily have the chance to meet despite already having something in common-their love of singing. Choir goers will have exciting performing opportunities throughout the year enhancing local community and charity events in Goole and further afield. It’s a really exciting time for everyone involved.’
Rock Choir is the UK’s largest contemporary choir, with more than 25,000 members in over 340 local communities. There are no auditions and no requirements to read music or have any previous singing experience. Rock Choir members get together each week to attend fun, friendly rehearsals where they are taught specially arranged pop and chart songs.
Weekly rehearsals for the Goole Rock Choir are in full swing and take place on Thursdays at 7.30pm at Goole Academy, Dance Studio, Centenary Road.
